Waco (September 29, 2011) -- The National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) informed Baylor University officials this afternoon that redshirt freshman running back Lache Seastrunk’s waiver and subsequent appeal of the organization’s transfer residency requirement have both been denied.
The Temple, Texas, native and University of Oregon transfer will have three years of eligibility to play three seasons when he takes to the field for the 2012 Bears. Seastrunk redshirted as a true freshman at Oregon a year ago.
The former Temple High prep All-American was a consensus top-five running back recruit nationally as a senior and graduated as THS’ all-time leader in rushing yards (4,217) and total touchdowns (52). Seastrunk rushed for 1,174 yards and 11 TDs and caught 12 passes for 218 yards and two scores as a senior in 2009 and earned APSE Class 5A second-team all-state honors. He ran for 1,541 yards and 14 TDs as a junior in 2008 and totaled 1,532 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns as a sophomore on Temple's district-championship team.
